Ginseng ficus (Ficus retusa) is one variety of this large group of fig trees. Native to Southeast Asia, the ginseng ficus is also called banyan fig, Taiwan ficus, and laurel fig. It is most striking in appearance because it grows thick roots that stay exposed above the surface of the ground. As a bonsai, the effect is of a small tree standing on legs.
The tree grows oval-shaped, dark green leaves. The trunk of the ginseng ficus is thick and bulbous, reddish-gray, and has tiger-like stripes. The leaves grow densely, giving you a thick canopy. The best part of growing ginseng ficus as a bonsai tree is that it requires little maintenance.
